Abandoning del.icio.us?

I understand that people are upset, but I don't get the point of moving from one problematic provider to another equally problematic provider.

It's the whole concept that's rotten, not just particular bad apples.

And in the meantime, I lose easy access to your much-valued data.

Thus, for 2011, we should all work hard on two issues:
  • Easier, but still hard: Decentralization: it shouldn't matter which problematic provider you're signed up to - I still want to browse your data in my problematic provider.
  • Hard: Make this sh*t work: We should found a democratic trust that hosts our data on a free software stack, so that we can get rid of problematic providers altogether.
Our data is worth much more than gold!
